I stayed here for one night during February 2012 and found everything to be fantastic from the welcoming, spacious lobby to the tidy. comfortable rooms to the fine Italian restaurant. Check in was swift and easy and the only downside of the room was the stunning views of the carpark, though river view rooms are available. I took dinner in the hotels Italian restaurant where the food, service and wine was excellent. If you're looking for a good base to explore the fnatastic city of Durham then the Radisson is certainly worth a look.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

I been using this hotel about every two months since it opened and have not yet been dissapointed. The three key things to any enjoyable hotel stay are: Price, Location and Staff. This hotel scores well on all three. Durham centre is just a short walk over the lovely bridge which looks amazing at night.
Durham is a beautiful city, so I don't need to explain the turistic highlights, but the one main advantage of this hotel is it proximity to it!
The hotel has nice bar area with comfortable seating and both bar and restaurant menu's are good and get reveiwed periodically.
The Gym is well equipped, but can get very busy at times with long waits for equipment.
The success of this hotel, in my experience is down to the staff, who are professional, polite and always willing to assist.

Room Tip: If you can, get a room facing the river, the bridge is lit up at night and so is the Cathedral.

Stayed here a couple of times and not disappointed, good location and rooms a re clean and spacious. Staff are polite and helpful, never had breakfast but had evening meal in restaurant. It was good, no complaints really maybe a bigger choice or maybe I am being picky. Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We just asked for a river view and got one no bother and no extra cost .

We booked for a one night stay with friends.
Check in is at 2pm, we arrived just after 2 & was told that our rooms were not ready.
After an hour sat waiting in the reception area, we eventually got our keys.
The standard rooms are lovely, nicely decorated & very clean & modern.
The hotel location is literally a 5 min walk from the city centre & bars.
We have eaten in this hotel restaurant about a year ago & didnt enjoy it so we ate out.
The breakfast was good, excellent choice however the cooked breakfast buffet food was lukewarm, which was a shame.
Also, the waitress who greetd us at the door for breakfast was wearing a shirt which was covered in stains & looked as if it hadnt been washed for a few days!
The staff were pleasant.
I would stay again however I wont be rushing to book.

Room Tip: Try to book a river view room.

Within walking distance of the city centre, this is a very modern hotel with luxury fitments, excellent service, and a superb breakfast buffet. We found it on-line and nearly booked, but could only get a twin room, so called the hotel. Not only did they offer a double room, but also a much better price with breakfast included - Radisson quality for the price of a Travelodge...
